I have read Starting Strength and found much value in the book. This DVD is a great tool if you are a visual learner. I will reference the DVD more than the book, but would recommend both.

The video/audio quality is decent, but the instruction of the athletes of different backgrounds is very helpful. The video is over 2 hours and is an excellent value.

Each segment has several people of different ages who are "coached" through each lift, starting from the basics and progressing from there.

While the book in and of itself is fantastic, [...read more]

I am a practicing physician in his early 40s who had never seriously done strength training until last August and I have come to the opinion that there is no better investment you can make in your health and fitness than to buy this DVD and Rip's book Starting Strength (2nd edition). I especially recommend the DVD and book for older trainees like myself and women - people whose idea of fitness is doing hours of mind-numbing "cardio" or doing useless isolation exercises on machines tryi [...read more]
